Beyond Thought And On Into Action | The Art of Ramsey Dau

October 19, 2016 - Catalog Essay by Arty Nelson

Surveying Dau’s work, it’s evident the artist places a high value on the handmade. That said, getting there Dau employs an exhaustive process using techniques from both the old world and the new; his formally rigorous compositions are vetted in depth both by hand and on the computer.

Carinthia West | West of Eden

October 11, 2016 - Fiona Mcgowan | Manor



Mick Jagger is staring straight at you. Now I’ve got your attention, I’ll begin. In the 1970s, Carinthia West was a model and an actress. Having been spotted by an agent in Carnaby Street, she was thrust into a world of she was thrustinto a world of rock stars and actors. Her life became an endless whirl of travel and parties, hanging out with stupendously successful stars, but she never fully immersed herself into it.

Even More Potent When Reheated, Reused, and Revived: the Art of Bernie Taupin

September 1, 2016 - Arty Nelson | [Image: Rob Hofmann]

Starting in the 90’s, Bernie Taupin, already responsible for generating a massive and an extremely potent body of song lyrics over four or five decades, began pouring his creative energies into amassing a body of visual work. Drawing upon a voracious appetite for looking at art and studying art history, Taupin began working, predominately painted abstraction, the earlier works owing heavily to the post-WWII American canon with an emphasis on Ab Ex peppered with bits of Color Field and Pop (from that, a group of canvases resembling “dripped grids” stand out as particularly compelling and original). Elements of words, often drawn from popular culture, media blitz and current events would sometimes appear, effectively punctuating the abstractions. Another quite resonant aspect of Taupin’s work is the connection to “The American” and/or “Americana.” As the artist himself has commented, I’ve been referred to as a British-born American Artist and that’s fine by me.


Hyperrealist Sculptures by Carole Feuerman in St. Tropez

Carole Feuerman “Perceptions” At KM Fine Arts

August 4, 2016 - Lisa Derrick - Huffington Post

Carole Feuerman sculpts triumphant hyper-realist figures of women celebrating their physicality as they move through space, timeless and iconic. Her newest works, as well as her classic pieces, in a show entitled “Perceptions,” are on exhibition at KM Fine Arts through September 10th.


Artist Interview: Carole Feuerman

July 19, 2016 - Megan Meahan

New York artist Carole Feuerman is famous for her hyperrealist sculptures and is credited as a pioneer of the movement. Born in Connecticut and raised in Brooklyn, Carole yearned to be an artist from an early age and took art lessons at age eleven. She eventually had the opportunity to show her work and, from there, it gained popularity and won awards. Carole’s #Art explores classicism while also presenting common themes that occur in people’s everyday lives. The sculptures tell powerful stories of the experiences that the artist has encountered in her life and the universality of those experiences. Recently, Carole spoke about her experiences as an artist.


Victor Matthews and Kenny Scharf Paint the Bronx

June 22, 2016 - Blouin Artinfo | Scott Indrisek

On the other side of the Greek food importer’s headquarters, a similarly long wall has been adorned by Victor Matthews. The two artists have been friends since the ’80s; they’re co-godfathers of Francesco Clemente’s daughter, a responsibility they assumed from Haring following his death in 1990. Matthews’s mural took nearly a month to complete, since, unlike Scharf, he favors traditional brushwork. In the midst of working on it, he was also juggling a solo show of new paintings, on view through July 9 at KM Fine Arts, the gallery instrumental in facilitating the Krinos project.


Dana Louise Kirkpatrick and Sonia Kashuk in Vanity Fair

May 6, 2016 - Vanity Fair Magazine - Audrey Noble

When Sonia Kashuk came across the artwork of Dana Louise Kirkpatrick at Art Basel last year, she came up with an idea for a collection that all of us women are excited to stand behind.


Dana Louise Kirkpatrick | Sonia Kashuk's Newest Campaign Draws on Knockout Influences

March 18, 2016 - Fashion Week - May Chan

If you’ve browsed through the beauty aisles at Target, you will know that Sonia Kashuk is synonymous with the retail giant.

Sonia’s Kashuk’s newest #KOBeauty campaign, however, has drawn support from supermodel Cindy Crawford for the right reasons.

Released on March 6, the Knock Out Beauty line, ranges from make-up bags to lip products, but what distinguishes the 16-piece line from others is the boxing illustrations depicted by artist Dana Louise Kirkpatrick.


Dana Louise Kirkpatrick | Every Badass Beauty Lover Needs Sonia Kasha's New Collection

March 18, 2016 - POP SUGAR - Aimee Simeon

Sonia collaborated with artist Dana Louise Kirkpatrick to create a line to empower women. The "knock out" theme was sparked when the girl boss fell in love with Dana's artwork at Art Basel in Miami. Her painting of a female fighter flashing her red boxing gloves immediately caught Sonia's eyes, and she purchased a piece of her work on the spot. It was then, and with some inspiration from her teenage daughter, that the vision for her new assortment was hatched.


The Things Kurt Cobain Left Behind

March 9, 2016 - Slate Magazine - Jordan G. Teicher

The easiest way to get to know Kurt Cobain is to listen to his music. Another way is to look through his stuff. That one’s a little trickier. 

But Geoff Moore had that rare opportunity in 2008, when Cobain’s estate tapped him to spend a day photographing the late Nirvana frontman’s personal possessions for Charles R. Cross’ book, Cobain Unseen. Now, they’re on display in Moore’s first solo art exhibition, “Endorsement—the unseen Cobain photos” at KM Fine Arts Los Angeles through March 26.

Check out these intimate photographs of Kurt Cobain's personal possessions, including beat-up guitars, scribbled-on sneakers, and even a heart-shaped box.



February 11, 2016 - LA Weekly - Pamela Chelin

In 2007, while photographer/director Geoff Moore was in the midst of photographing some of Kurt Cobain's personal possessions for Charles R. Cross' book Cobain Unseen, everyone in the room was suddenly covered in goosebumps when a certain song loaded up on Moore's iPod.


new kurt cobain photo exhibit takes a look into his personal world

February 9, 2016 - VICE

In an exhibit opening on Thursday, February 11 in L.A., photographer Geoff Moore will be displaying his prints of never-before-seen private objects owned by Kurt Cobain. The show, entitled "Endorsement — The Unseen Kurt Cobain Photos," was inspired by the book Cobain Unseen, by Charles R. Cross, for which Moore captured the images of the musician's ephemera.


Geoff Moore's images of Cobain's instruments, artwork, journals and more will appear in new 'Endorsement' show

February 9, 2016 - Rolling Stone

In Cobain UnseenKurt Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross journeyed deep into the personal archive of the late Nirvana leader. Along with old photos of a young Cobain as well as his journal entries and scribbles, the book featured new photos of Cobain's personal belongings. For one day, photographer Geoff Moore entered the vault and took photos of the items for Cobain Unseen. Now, the 2007 images will be featured in an exhibit called Endorsement that will open at Los Angeles' KM Fine Arts Gallery on February 11th. Take a look at a few of the images to be displayed at the show.


W Magazine | The Unseen Kurt Cobain

February 5, 2016 - W Magazine

A lot of Kurt Cobain has spilled lately. The vertiginous voyeurism of Brett Morgen's 2015 HBO documentary Montage of Heck was only amplified by the release of a 31-track album of dialogue and sounds Cobain recorded onto cassettes in his home. And now the photographer Geoff Moore is mounting an exhibition at KM Fine Arts in Los Angeles of pictures of Cobain's prized possessions—a smashed guitar, a small heart-shaped box, a stuffed monkey. (He originally took them for a 2009 book, Cobain Unseen, by Charles Cross.) It's hard to look away from this inventory, which only confirms the impression that you accidentally opened the door to a teenager's room—which is to say, he probably wouldn't want you there.


"Unseen" photos of Kurt Cobain's Personal Possessions

February 4, 2016 - Esquire Magazine


Back in 2008, the contents of Kurt Cobain's vault were made available to photographer Geoff Moore for one day. Under tight security, the photographer combed through Cobain's personal possessions and carefully photographed each one. The resulting images were published in a book by Charles R. Cross, Cobain Unseen, but are on display for the first time in public at Moore's debut photo exhibition at KM Fine Arts in Los Angeles. From a smashed guitar to a broken ceramic statue of Mary in a box, the photographs reveal the personal life of Cobain like you've never seen before.


HYPEBEAST | These Photos of Kurt Cobain's Personal Treasures Are Intimate and Haunting

February 4, 2016 - HYPEBEAST

Los Angeles-based photographer Geoff Moore spent one day with a treasure trove of Kurt Cobain’s personal memorabilia back in 2007 for a photoshoot commissioned by the late rockstar’s estate. The photographer was given access to the archives that were housed in a high-security storage unit. The ephemera include Kurt’s beloved Converse, several guitars in various stages of disintegration, and the heart-shaped box given to the Nirvana frontman by his wife, Courtney Love. All of the items bear signs of a grungy existence — snapped strings, ironic political bumper sticker appliqués, scrawled lyrics and so on. Additional photos that catalog the aesthetic is one that reflects the time period of Cobain’s life, while also bursting at the seams with inside jokes and references both well-known and arcane. The photos are going on display for the first time at KM Fine Arts on February 11.

Boxing Paintings by Dana Louise Kirkpatrick Unpack Personal and Historical Narratives

January 21, 2016 - Jessica Simmons

Upon entering Dana Louise Kirkpatrick’s current solo exhibition, “RING GIRL,” at KM Fine Arts, one immediately smells the vague aroma of oil paint, making the viewer’s first experience of the work an olfactive one. Comprised of large-scale paintings and unframed drawings that depict male boxers in various states of victory and bloody defeat, the show suggests that painting itself is a duel, both on an intimate level and a historical one.

From Used Books to Painter’s Tape, Ramsey Dau’s Hyperrealist Paintings of Collages

October 15, 2015 - Rachel Will, Artsy

Ramsey Dau admits he had no real interest in African sculpture before stumbling across a battered copy of Jean Laude’s 1971 book The Arts of Black Africa in a bookstore. According to Dau’s account, the “poorly photographed, poorly reproduced” book spoke to him, and he decided to incorporate it into his latest series of hyperrealist paintings.

Dana Louise Kirkpatrick | ZUGZWANG reviewed by Artsy

December 21, 2014 - Stephen Dillon

In her second solo show at KM Fine Arts this winter Dana Louise Kirkpatrick presents over a dozen new drawings. “ZUGZWANG,” the exhibition’s title, refers to an interaction in a game, but especially chess, where a player is forced to make a move and their options are limited to undesirable choices—the results of the opponent’s moves. The reference can be understood as a personal commentary by the artist, referring to grapples with her work in the studio, playing against the canvas and being forced into certain moves by the logic of the art itself....

Following a Move to L.A., the World of Victor Matthews Gets a Bit Brighter

October 25, 2014 - Maxwell Williams - Artsy

For nearly 30 years, Brooklyn-born artist Victor Matthewshas filled his canvases with semi-abstract cityscapes and signifiers of the New York boroughs in which he made his career. A recent move to Los Angeles is evident in his most recent work, which is on view at KM Fine Arts in West Hollywood. For his first solo exhibition in L.A., “bright… brighter… brightest,” Matthews maintains the white hieroglyph-style geometric motif that has filled his work since the 1980s, but the California sky seems to have seeped into the background. Instead of white paint on unprimed taupe canvases, several of the works are painted over colorful gradient backdrops that echo the sunrise and sunset of Los Angeles.
